Occasional Paper Number 13—Management Skills Development in Canada, December 1995

The central question of this paper is whether the skills of Canadian managers are sufficient to meet the challenges of the knowledge-based economy. If continuous innovation is the engine of growth, and innovation depends on new ideas and knowledge, then human resources are of paramount importance, and redoubled efforts are required across the entire spectrum of skill development. This paper focuses on management education, training and development, examining the contention that there are worrisome deficiencies in management skills in Canada.
